Shine the Divine:

Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice

When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

 daring to defy the crowd
unified by light

  8. Laura, you made me laugh out loud! I am currently working with a group, and while we like each other and have the same goals, we resemble your dissimilar icicles. It is nature's way, isn't it?
